Welcome to Sideletter

Hi, I’m Ryan. You might know me from my work at TechCrunch, where I spent several years writing about early-stage startups and venture capital. In addition to my time in media, I spent some time in venture capital at 500 Startups and corporate innovation at Samsung Next.

Along the way, I’ve maintained a love of startups and technology and the high-minded pursuit of envisioning and inventing a better future. This newsletter is a place where I share my thoughts on startups, tech, media, and finance.
